Quick Hit #1: Freedom of speech…only for some.
“Under the holy mantra of academic freedom of speech Iran’s president Ahmadinejad was invited to speak at Columbia (we would have invited Hitler) University despite promising to eliminate the population of Israel.” But… “[W]hen Nobel Prize winner James Watson questioned the intelligence of Africans his book tour was cancelled, lectures called off, job suspended.” And… “[A]t Emory University in Atlanta academic freedom of speech was totally silenced as David Horowitz futilely attempted to talk during Islamo Fascism Awareness Week”…”From the beginning of Horowitz’s speech, rowdy protesters continually interrupted him and less than half an hour into the event, the crowd became so disruptive that police were called in and Horowitz had to be escorted off stage.” Liberalism at its finest: all are equal, but some are more equal than others.
Quick Hit #2: Islam’s high-profile targets.
David Horowitz (one of the original starters of modern-day liberalism who has since seen the light and gone conservative) envisioned and implemented Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, much to the dismay of liberals and jihad-enablers around the country. Despite vigorous resistance, a panel of former left-wing academics spoke at Columbia Wednesday evening, opening eyes about the shortcomings of Islamofascism, radical feminism, and other liberal ideas. These are the best and the brightest, and they know their opposition well, since they used to be numbered among the opposition themselves.
Go read about it and be enlightened.
Quick Hit #3: Europe Wants to Be a Superpower.
This is an interesting article about how Europe is striving to be a superpower to counter the United States, and how their goal is impossible to achieve.
The real danger is for the U.S. to willingly follow in Europe’s footsteps toward socialism and capitulation.
Quick Hit #4: How Hillary Revived the GOP.
Here’s an interesting article on how the seemingly insurmountable lead of Hillary Clinton in the Democrat primary has enabled Republicans to galvanize their base more than is normal for this early point in the election cycle.
Democrats have known for quite some time that Hillary is an extremely polarizing figure; if she wins the nomination, it will be an extreme gamble for them as a party.
Quick Hit #5: Philly Punishes Boy Scouts.
The city of Philadelphia has raised the rent on the Boy Scouts’ office since it ‘discriminates’ against homosexuals. Legal action is pending; a 2000 Supreme Court ruling said that the Scouts have a First Amendment right to bar homosexuals from membership.
Since when does a private religious organization have to allow anyone and everyone into the group??
Quick Hit #6: Plumbing the depths of the Israel/Syria raid.
Several news sources are digging deeper into the connections between Syria, Iran, and North Korea that prompted Israel’s attack on a Syrian nuclear facility in early September. The connections are far deeper than people realized, with the situation possibly being thus: North Korea made a deal with Iran to provide material and knowledge to make nuclear weapons, but given the current scrutiny on Iran, the activity is being conducted/stored in Syria. Suspicion is also raised by the very fast cleanup of the site of Israel’s attack. As you can see in the pics below, the site has been totally cleaned in just a few weeks.
Another fact that I personally think has been overlooked is that we know for a fact that WMDs used to be in Iraq; where did they go? There was speculation several years ago that they were shipped over to Syria. Hmmm…sounds familiar…
Have a great weekend!
